"The mind is sharper and keener in seclusion and uninterrupted solitude." -Nikola Tesla-
Great Human Odyssey
I learned how resilient and strong our Homo sapiens sapiens ancestors were after watching this. The rough terrain, unrelenting weather, and scarcity of food they endured and survived really make us the smartest bipedal animals in existence. I watched all the great peoples of the world with primitive hunting styles and ways of life existing “alongside” the industrialized societies of today. We have really turned into a population as an whole that our ancestors might question, good and bad. Many millennial children will be the first to not be in a better place economically and physically compared to their parents. I wonder hundreds of years from now will things have actually changed for the better given all that has gone and continues to dwindle. It’s good food for thought as we seem to be turning into a world of machines and speed. Don’t get me wrong, I love Netflix where this can be viewed as well as on PBS. Everything in moderation, right?
